This book, as many of you may already know, is mainly focused upon King’s Landing and some might say the South but I’m not so sure about that. In this book we read for the first time from Cersei’s perspective and I have to admit that getting inside her head and seeing firsthand how her brain works, well, it was truly amazing. We see every single bit of malice the lovely Queen Regent has and how far she’s willing to go to ensure that Tommen remains safe and sound from whoever tries to do him harm.
The story, despite the absence of some of the characters, such as Tyrion, Daenerys & Jon, was still just as riveting and I think that was principally because of the fact that the plot twists and revelations were scattered throughout the book so it actually kept me on the edge and had me intrigued the entire time.
This book was big enough and I understand why Mr. Martin divided the story into two parts. It would just be too huge if he had tried to write about all of the characters in one book and I understand he has a lot to write and a lot to give to us through his stories so honestly I’m not disappointed, if anything, I’m happy that he did that. The more the books, the merrier I’ll be.
The fact, that a person can build such an amazing world, with the tiniest of details, it’s truly amazing and inspirational. I don’t get how he does it and honestly I get why his books take so long to come out, I mean they’re huge, they’re full of made-up history. I mean I wouldn’t even be able to remember the names if I were him. I admire his talent and I hope there are more amazing books to come. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, I’m anxious and ready for Jon, Dany & Tyrion’s stories in the next book.
